Why We ♥ Toronto

Reasons we love Toronto
Why We ♥ Toronto

Staying up past 7 pm can often be a struggle, so the thought of do(ing) a little dance, mak(ing) a little love and get(ting) down tonight—or any night—might sound ambitious. 

But living in Hogtown means that there’s always the option, and that’s what Alison, our Toronto editor loves about this city:

“Celebrating nights away from the kids (and parking the yoga pants) is why I love Massey Hall, Toronto’s cultural connector.

Operating alongside Roy Thomson Hall, the two venues have welcomed dozens of A-list musicians, celebrities and events (including TIFF galas) and usually offer something for every age each month.

They even think of the kids—with afternoon performances of Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s Young People’s Concerts with music from Thomas and Friends and The Polar Express.

As a thank you for all the free babysitting, send your in-laws to a night with Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin or a talk by David Suzuki.

And for a much-needed date night with your beloved, a night of laughter compliments of successful Canadian comedian Jeremy Hotz, or any number of up-and-coming musical acts, should help you both (temporarily) forget the fact that you are now responsible parents who, instead of hitting Fran’s across the street for late-night poutine, will be heading home to feed a small, hungry human of your own making.

That’s just one of the reasons why I love this town. There is so much more.” Here are 7 Reasons to Love Toronto.
